Six Democratic congressmen presented 5 articles of impeachment against President Trump on Wednesday, adding to the growing list of congressmen calling for his removal.

Why it matters: With 40% of Americans supporting impeachment, according to an August poll by the Public Religion Research Institute, there will likely more efforts to impeach the president. Impeachment requires a majority of House members, and no Republicans have publicly supported efforts for impeachment.
